Located at peaceful Kealakekua Bay, a small, quiet, low-key shoreline community. Walk the length of a football field to the beach. It is an ideal retreat for one or two couples. Only steps to enter the crystal clear water at the palm shaded beach, across from the Captain Cook Monument, for the best snorkeling in the islands. Pristine Kealakekua Bay is a protected marine preserve and underwater park providing numerous water activities and spinner dolphin sightings (and whales in winter). Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy. The home is a new superbly crafted tropical luxurious pole and beam design showcasing natural woods, Italian floor tile, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, new tropical furnishings and a ten jet spa tub. There are large indoor and outdoor walk-in tile showers. Entrance lock box with key and security code for easy check-in and out.
Free Secured Wireless internet access . Free local and unlimited long distance calls to US mainland and Canada.
Ocean water temperatures range consistently from 75 (in Feb) to 82 (in late summer).
At present, kayaking in the bay is by permit and through a number of tour companies or your own permit online at: email@example.com.

Aloha!! We really enjoyed our stay at Hale Lana. Loved all the windows and screen doors. Loved all your plants. It's really the nicest place we've stayed in all of Hawaii. We just left things open all night and loved the breezes and stars. We hope to return.
Hale Lana gets our highest rating of the 8 properties we stayed at this year. For starters, everything in it
looks brand new. Furnishings are upscale yet practical. For example, the super-clean kitchen is equipped with
complete high-end cookware and equipment -- no random jumble of second-hand, mis-matched or worn items here.
The space is wrapped with sliding glass doors and almost 360 degrees of lanai. The ocean can be seen from the lanai and is a short walk from the house (3 blocks). In the instructions for the house is the location of another "secret" sandy swimming beach, which is not otherwise easy to find in this area.
You will have complete privacy here. Owners seem low-key and live elsewhere on the island but are available if needed. Beautiful lush palm trees block views of neighboring properties, and create gorgeous filtered light. The bathroom tub is a 2-person jacuzzi which I view as another gesture of generosity on the part of the owners. It seems like they thought of everything, from creating a truly serene ambiance to a great collection beach gear, and I recommend it without reservation. There is a ground-floor rental beneath you but we didn't realize it was occupied until the day they packed up to leave. There is adequate off-street parking within the walled and gated perimeter. There are no noise, traffic or insect problems here. It is better than advertised.
My wife and I have been to Hawaii many times and rented condos and vacation rentals. This is the best furnished vacation rental we have rented, and at a fantastic location, just a few hundred yards from Manini beach, on Kealakedua Bay. The upstairs apartment has excellent architecture and construction and is well maintained. Many nice amentities, including beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, boogie board, washer and dryer, and outdoor shower with hot water.
This was our second year to stay upstairs at Hale Lana (and we'll probably schedule many more visits in the years ahead. Initially, we were concerned about the tsunami damage at nearby Manini Beach, but Mother Nature often has a way of changing things for the better. Instead of the sharp lava rocks and coral to challenge your bare feet, there is now a gentle SANDY slope into the ocean. The fish were just as plentiful as last year, and the coral seems healthier. We were able to snorkel almost every day either at Manini Beach or Two-Step (4 miles away). (By the way, the local people did an amazing job of cleaning up the tsunami damage and Dennis was instrumental in providing new palm trees and plants to replace the ones swept away. Many thanks to all of you who helped).
We appreciate the cleanliness and attention to detail at Hale Lana and our stay of 9 + days was very enjoyable, except for three days of construction noise from nearby houses being repaired from tsunami damage. We woke up to the sound of jackhammers and the "beep-beep-beep" of equipment backing up instead of the sounds of the ocean! Hopefully that will be finished soon.
This property is well worth the cost of the stay. We can highly recommend it to anyone who likes to snorkel or swim, doesn't mind being off the beaten path, and can climb a flight of stairs.
Thanks, Dennis, for making this beautiful place available. We'll be back.
Lloy and Russ Keeling,
A well designed, well equipped, and well maintained property in a excellent location that is very reasonably priced. While a car is essential, this is a great spot to explore the southern half of the Big Island. Would book the whole house next time and bring our adult children.
In February 2010, my husband and I returned to Hale Lana for the third year in a row and spent 8 days in the second floor unit of this beautiful house. Hale Lana is elegantly decorated in an Asian-influenced motif, and the architecture of the two-story ceiling lets the trade winds cool the house, keeping it comfortable day and night. The wrap-around lana’i is one of the pleasures of this house where we can sit and listen to the morning doves, the mynah birds and the waves at Manini Beach. The house is impeccably clean and very well equipped. The owners exude the Aloha spirit, they are extremely accommodating, and pleasantly businesslike in their management of this rental which is something we “New Yawkuhs” appreciate. The price of the rental is fair in comparison to the other rentals in the area and the location is wonderful. If you are into the night life and are coming to Hawaii to party, this is not the place for you, but if you want a taste of a quiet old Hawaiian neighborhood in a beautiful home on the ocean (ok, ok, so it's really a block or so in from the ocean), this is the place for you. (PS While we were there, I walked over to Auntie Margaret’s Massage School on Ke’ei Beach and had a soothing lomi massage while I watched whales spouting in the ocean. Very cool!) We are already planning our return in February 2011!
My husband and I spent three glorious weeks at Hale Lana at the end of 2009. It was a perfect retreat from the mainland--relaxing at every turn. The one-bedroom upstairs area is completely inviting--great color scheme (a calming green) and well-equipped for preparing meals. The location is fabulous, just a short walk to Manini and Keei beaches, and an easy drive to Two-Step. Every detail made our stay perfect from the quiet neighborhood to the sound of the bay lulling us to sleep at night. We took advantage of amenities provided, taking the beach chairs and towels on all adventures. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a Big Island adventure with many of the comforts of home.
Grocery stores, shopping and numerous restaurants are a 15 minute picturesque drive away. There are many areas to explore on foot. Historic Place of Refuge National Park (featuring Hawaiian historical and cultural displays, picnics, whale watching, sunsets on the tide pools and dating from the 1500's) is three miles away. Keei (a crescent white sand, shaded, uncrowded surfing beach) is a short walk or drive away. It is also i Kayak rental and launching (with all you need) is a short block away. It is also located in the heart of ranches and rodeo grounds. Hale Lana is conveniently located between 'downtown' Kailua-Kona (for extensive shopping, dining, movies, boat harbor and night-life) and the wonders of Volcanos National Park and green and black sand beaches to the south, making it an ideal 'home-base' Relax on any of the numerous lanais or secluded nearby beaches or get on the road for easy short or day trips and easily explore all the 'Big Island'.
Located in a very quiet area free of the loud and invasive Coqui frog.
